Clark Center for Japanese Art & Culture. They have a beautiful exhibit on Japanese screens. We had some delightful docents that are studying here from Australia. There was a bonsai exhibit, and I fell in love with this beautiful tree.. They were all so amazing with their textured trunks and soft looking leaves.. There was also a bonsai pomegranate tree that bears full size fruit.

In February 14th, Valentines, my husband and I decided to take the self guided Madera Wine and Chocolate Weekend Tour. We had a wonderful time.. even though we don't drink wine, but we have visiting friends that do.. There was chocolate! And Artists! Several Artist friends were showing their wonderful pieces of art at different wineries. It started out foggy, but soon the sun was shining and the sky was blue. Each winery had it's own special flavor... I am sorry I did not buy some of the flavored olive oils for cooking and salads.. Next time! There was music and lunches at each location. We went by Birdstone, Ficklin, Quady, and Chateau Lasgoity.
